Short description of error
If i turn on display of measurements like "edge length" the display vanish after rightclick somewhere in the edit window.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • the display of "edge length" are gone, turn on/off display "edge length" and/or switching object/edit mode dont slove this, new object showing "edge length", but first right click the same problem again

IMO, not a bug/error!
@Rigoletto Eikenberg (rigoletto) Overlays ->Measurement -> Edge Length only show length of selected edge:
As tool-tip says:

& I think, you are in Vertex Select Mode, until you not select whole edge / multiple edges length will not shown.
I 'am not sure, by right clicking (by default it's open menu) it's should effect any? Maybe your primary button for selection is Right Click

Please confirm and let we know... thanks!

Yes, your are right, not a bug/error.
I tought it should display the measurments all the time, not only for selection as the tooltip says.
